Hi,
I'm new here and have had my 2nd colonoscopy. I'm now suppose to have this surgery new week and I'M SCARED!!! I'm also Diabetic, have stage 2-3 Kidney disease. I've had LCIS & then also they found DCIS after doing biopsy. I go in tomorrow for labs & chest x-rays.

How long will I be in the Hospital and what's it going to be like with part of my large colon gone?
